Hi,

This problem is most commonly due to a defrost drain being clogged. The water that should run down the drain is accumulating and freezing. See the link below for details on taking care of the problem.

I have a Neff fridge and Freezer Model K4204x6GB03. The fridge is getting very cold and building ICe on the back wall of fridge and too much Ice on the bottom of the fridge under the vegetable tray


First, try turning down the temperature control on the fridge incrementally and see if that gradually over time helps. If not, you may need to unplug the fridge for 15 or so minutes, hope it will recycle and then plug it back up, setting the control to what would be normally considered to be a moderate setting. If that fails, call a fridge repairman who you trust, , ,

Fridge looses temperature


Make sure the two vents from the top of the fridge that run into the freezer are not blocked or obstructed in anyway, that's what the problem was in ours. Also do not allow ice to build up on the vents in the freezer.

The drip tray is all the way at the bottom.Pull of the grill at the bottom of the refrig,tray should be there.

Also there is a hole or tube under your crispers,check that its clear and not clogged with junk.

I purchased a bottom freezer Amana refrigerator when we built our house in 1999. The produce in the vegetable drawer keeps freezing! Everything else in the fridge is fine. Why does this happen?


Usually on bottom freezer fridges, there are two vents at the bottom of the freezer compartment where the cold air goes back into the freezer (cold air enters the fridge through the vent at the top/back of the fridge.)

If the vents at the back of the fridge are covered, the cold air will settle to the bottom of the fridge after it enters, and freeze your vegetables. The problem could be caused by ice build up in the evaporator coil of the freezer section also, but this will probably warrant a checkup from a pro.

One thing that can cause ice to build up inside those vents is moist air seeping in through a faulty door gasket. A thin coat of ordinary Vaseline on the gasket surface can help it make a better seal.

Water accumulation underneath the bottom vetable


Two solutions
1 If a frost free fridge/freezer - ice build up in internal cooler - defrost totally until no more water
2 if ordinary fridge/freezer look inside at the back, you should see a very shallow 'V' shaped plastic channel running to a small drain hole which leads to the rear outside of the unit. This channel collects the water drips from the cooler
Clear this hole with a pipe cleaner or cocktail stick or similar

Not keeping food cold and popping noise


There is ice buildup in an area that you cannot see.

The interior wall may "bulge" a little if the ice builds up a lot.

1. You may have the cooling dial set too high (use lower numbers)
2. The blower vent into the fridge or freezer maybe blocked (move items away from vents inside)
3. Defrost the fridge. The water pan underneath the refrigerator may overflow.

If there is no "defrost" setting, unplug for an hour (don't open refrigerator or freezer during defrost)

Plug back in, food will not spoil.

Ice maker quit working and I feel that it is not getting as cold as it should (i.e. ice cream melts but other items like vegetables stay frozen).


clean the coil behind the fridge or under the fridge (where ever they are) and make sure both fans are running, the one in the freezer and the one underneath or low freon from factory or small hole in system

Fridge drain is overflowing into base of fridge, causing build-up of ice over base, which then 'sticks' the salad boxes to the base of the fridge, making them difficult to draw out. I have to scrape the...


Some insect would have gone into the drain pipe and blocked the outlet for the water to flow and it gets collected inside.

First please clean the drain pipe and remove any block.

Defrost your refrigerator at least once in three days.

Excess ice formed in the freezer chamber will result in less cooling and melting of ice and make it run down.

The above remedies should solve your problem

Too cold in bottom section


Had the same problem and referred to another post regarding ice build up around the evaporator coils in the freezer unit. I had no ice build up but flat foil guard had dropped down across the freezer outlet which caused more cold air to be forced up into the lower section of the fridge. This caused the freezing of the vegetables.
Follow barkbugs steps first www.fixya.com/support/t970724-fisher_paykel_fridge_freezer and see if that is the problem.
Also while starting to remove items from the freezer check to see if something has moved back and is blocking the air vent. Even a packet of food may cause enough blockage. A slicker pad was also part of our problem.
